Rita Ora Infuriates Locals Amid Coronavirus Quarantine at Rented Farmhouse

Rita Ora is rumored to have upset locals near a farmhouse she's reported to be staying at during quarantine. The singer left her London home in late March and arrived at the getaway house on March 21. She's staying at the rural Cotswolds property in southwest England with a few close friends and those living in the area aren't happy about it.

The 29-year-old is staying with five other people and is said to have booked the trip prior to the coronavirus pandemic. According to the Daily Mail, one local in the area took to social media to post in an online residents group saying, "Surely she should respect the rules and have stayed in f—ing London?" While it's being questioned on whether she's taking the pandemic seriously or not, one of her friends said, "She is deadly serious about coronavirus lockdown and doing her bit by self-isolating and not traveling home."
